    @wazbub - Wonderful to hear that your little ones are home and doing so well! That's really great news for twins to be home even before 37 weeks. Now you have the challenge of establishing a routine for not one baby but TWO!! I hope you are managing and loving every moment of your hard-earned sleep deprivation :-) :-)

    @Jennski - how is your pregnancy progressing? I agree with Wazbub, you have to slow down. I have been tired at the end (we have to remember we are not 21 anymore) and one day honestly thought I was going into labor just because I had completely overdone it that day. So go slow, lie down during the day, sleep in etc. even if you feel great.

    AFM, I have a C-section booked for this coming Saturday! I will be 39+1 so my Dr and I think that's a good balance between the baby being "cooked" and the risks associated with age. I've had an easy and healthy pregnancy so we don't see any of those risks materializing, but I was never going to do natural labor (due to birth complications I had with my son) so we need to choose a c-section date at some point. I am so excited to meet this little baby that I can hardly contain myself - I feel like I'm going to burst with excitement and happiness.

    I am loving our 3 success stories and how far we've come since we met in SA.

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to this forum... it has taken me a couple of weeks to get through the posts and have gone through a lot of highs and lows reading all your posts. Thank you all so much for your information and sharing your personal journeys !

    Forgive me if I don't have all the right abbreviations yet....

    My DH and I would love to be parents but my age (46) (and thus age of my eggs) is letting us down . I've wanted to have twins since I was 16 and planned on being a young mom.... sadly that wasn't the case for me - not finding love/DH until fairly recently. (My mom is a twin as is my DH).

    The FS we were seeing said IVF won't work for us due to my age and suggested CT and CFC but can't assist any further. So the information from this forum which I found doing a search on CFC has been immeasurable!

    We have contacted CFC and just have to chose a donor and then send in payment and papers... - that's where I'm finding it difficult... I am very concerned that most of the donors are smokers... what are your thoughts about that?

    Many on this thread have mentioned an immunology regime... is that a good idea for all or just if you have a specific fertility issue?

    I'm trying to figure out what exactly to ask (kind of like a blind spot - if you don't know what to ask how can you ask anything? ). I haven't quite figured out all the medications that have been mentioned in posts and if they're for everyone or not... And when someone mentioned the world egg donations done in Australia that also started a new thing for me to start researching ....

    I look forward to reading about all the new BFP that are coming up!!

    Welcome @Rhino! I hope your CFC journey is a short successful one. I've just sent you a quick PM with info on an unproven non-smoking 18 y/o twin ED who also has a strong history of twins in her family. xx

    No probs @Rhino! Under the email there' a 'quick reply' text box with a repeat of the message that's above it. You just reply in that box and hit send. Good luck!

    Welcome @Rhino and good luck. Yes it does seem that they are all smokers over there so I guess all you can do is go with the ones who 'say' they only have a couple a week - or the rare non smoker. Try to go with either a very young donor or a proven one would be my suggestion. Even with a proven donor I personally would not go over 28/29 years old. My donor was only 'proven' because she had a child of her own and I think that's not necessarily the best indication. They still had no way of knowing what her response would be to the meds, but she was quite young and she appealed to me for lots of other reasons so we went with her anyway and obviously I'm glad we did. We should have our twins in around 3 weeks time (thank God because I am over THIS). If you do go to CT and don't have success the first time around I would suggest either getting all the immune testing done, or if you have enough embies left, try going on prednisone, clexane and baby aspirin (basic immune protocol) and intralipids if you can get your hands on them. There is some speculation that high doses of fish oil can have similar benefits as intralipids - not proven, but then I'm not sure intralipids are proven either - so I went on mega doses of fish oil as well. My first cycle over there failed for no good reason, further blood tests indicated high anti nuclear antibodies (which supposedly shouldn't have affected a pregnancy) but they put me on the basic immune protocol anyway and BAM twins. After 17 unsuccessful embryos I might add. But... everyone is different. I highly recommend CFC. And this forum opened up my eyes to it also, so here I am. Just about to finish my journey yay

    Thank you @JulieMalooley! That's very helpful info!! I see you're from Redcliffe (we went there for our honeymoon)! Congratulations on your twins

    I think I'll start increasing my fish oil now - am on very high quality ones already so may as well increase now! do you know how mega the dose of EPA/DHA from fish oil is required?

    Thanks again

    I was on about 4000 and also on really good quality ones. None of the doctors were prepared to say if it helped and/or how much to take so I just went high. Another bonus is it thins your blood too which also helps.
